I can't understand the CL_DEVICE_MAX_MEM_ALLOC_SIZE restriction!

Hi,

the OpenCL-standard says:

 

Max size of memory object allocation in bytes. The minimum value is max(1/4th of CL_DEVICE_GLOBAL_MEM_SIZE , 128*1024*1024)


But why is the minimum implemented? -.- I buy a graphic card with 1GB and can only use 256 in one buffer. Why can't i maximal alloc the global memory size?

Sry, but this is ****
